Youtube Updates

I’ve always found YouTube a difficult interface to use for anything but finding a specific video that I recall in my mind. They’ve tried in various ways to present content I’m interested in (my subscriptions), what they think I’m interested in (recommendations), and trending in different ways; and each interface ended up being ignored because it was too clunky / cumbersome / inaccurate etc.

The most recent round of updates have made it both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

First weekend in Cardiff

After a nervous travel to Cardiff by car, I have stayed for the first time in Cardiff, with Yanna, in her flat by the bay.

Some mishaps have occurred (including having to drive back to the shop to buy the main part of our meals, breaking a part of Yannas furniture when loading it into the car, spilling my rice and korma onto the floor, and walking into an ajar door! – all in one day -.-), but it has been a nice weekend.

We are about to have Yannas special spaghetti, and Yanna is asking me what I want to watch…

“no idea” 😛
